When you missed something in the instructions, and the water goes sour,
you need to get the spa back to a sanitary condition then start
over. It is impossible to get the
spa under control if you have biofilm bacteria in the plumbing and
If the water will not stay clear with standard care, then you have
developed biofilm inside the plumbing. It is bacteria colonies
that have a self protetive coating.
You have to burn out all of that with strong chlorine
DO NOT USE THE SPA UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE THIS.
1/ Remove the filters and place in a bucket of
filter cleanse overnight
then soak in bleach (1/4 cup per gallon of water) the next day.
Do not put the filters back in until you have done the remaining steps.
2/ Drain the spa and refil.
3/ Get the pH
4/ Put in one cup of Chlorine
concentrate per 400 gallons (1/2 for
small spas 180 to 200 gallons), and set the spa for two long fitlter
cycles. Run the air pump and the jet pumps at least three
to five times during this clean out period for at least 10 minutes each
5/ After 24 hours put in 10 tablespoons of non
chlorine shock and run
for one hour. Be sure to run the jets on high and the
blower at least one cycle.
Run for one hour then...... Add the amount of Spa
Flush either or Jet
6/ Drain, refil, and put the clean
and sanitized filters
in. Follow the instructions exactly and if you have any questions
about any part of the water care, contact us.
